I wanted to show you this old strip of barkcloth.
I’m not sure what to do with it. It’s only 21cms wide, and I don’t think I can bear to cut it up further because I like the conversation the trees are having with each other. It’s crying out for some bright cherry red, I think, to set it off.
The back-story of this scrap is that it belonged to my mother-in-law. I’m guessing she got hold of it in the ’50s or early ’60s. I don’t know if it was left over from curtains, though I know she was most definitely the curtains-making type.
What would you do with it?
